    Glue ups are simultaneously the most fun and the worst at the same time.

    WHY DOES NOTHING FIT TOGETHER LIKE IT DID IN THE DRY ASSEMBLY

    Today we took it off the form, planed it flat, routed the edges, sanded it smooth, cut the net string slot, and drilled the holes for the net. I've now got it strung up and applied the first coat of tung oil sealer.

    I’m a complete rookie just looking to add hobbies. I’m not sure where to start. What are the things I need for a beginner? I.E tools, books etc.

    Number 1 rule of woodworking: you can always use more clamps. Nipple is included.

    Was worried they were talking about a different kind of "wood working"

    So what tools do you have and how much space do you have for tools?

    Find a project you want to build that's simple but that you like. Figure out which tools you need to make it and go from there. That's what I did

    Standard home tools. I figure the only things I currently have that’d be of use are tape measure, level, saw.

    Simple tools to get: electric drill/driver, circular saw, square, and depending on what you may want to do, a collapsible table saw.
